While I’m sure it’s not popular to say this, a little part of me is going to miss Michele Bachmann when she’s gone from Congress. Not because I agree with her politics, but because she might be the most ridiculous member of Congress any of us might ever see.
Sure, some have been a little crazier (Allen West for example). Many have even made careers built off pure right-wing propaganda and lies (Ted Cruz is a prime example). Heck, some have even managed to make themselves look more foolish than she can (look up Ted Yoho’s greatest hits). But very few have put all of that together in one perfect package of irrational gay bashing, bigotry, racism and stupidity quite like Michele Bachmann.
And while I always assumed she’d end up on Fox News as a paid contributor, I’m not so sure now after seeing an interview where Neil Cavuto ripped her and other Republicans who continue to bring up the possibility of impeaching President Obama.
During a discussion about news that Speaker Boehner might sue the Obama administration, Cavuto went off on Bachmann for what he considers nothing more than an “enormous waste of effort.”
“You’re conflating issues and you’re being silly,” Cavuto said speaking over Bachmann. “Where was your rage when Democrats were going after President Bush on the same use of executive orders? Because I think you knew then that that was a waste of time then and I think you know in your heart of hearts this is a waste of time now. There are far more important things that I think you guys have to be addressing than filing lawsuits past each other.”
Bachmann responded, “I’m not the one talking about that. What I am saying is that what’s very important is the president trying to establish lawlessness in the United States.”
“Democrats said George Bush did the same, congresswoman,” Cavuto replied.
“What we need to do is defund the executive branch, number one, and then impeach executive branch officials who have broken the law,” she insisted.
“Think about what you’re saying, defund the executive branch? Congresswoman, if Democrats had said, ‘We’re gonna defund President Bush,’ you would have laughed at them, and I think Democrats would be in their right mind to laugh you out now – defund them.” Cavuto said with disgust.
You really need to check out the video below to grasp the full intensity of the interview. Cavuto showed nothing but disgust and disdain towards Bachmann, and other Republicans who are wasting time with these pointless partisan lawsuits.
And Bachmann looked every bit the fool, just like she always does.
